Description 

The Boulders are a unique collection of small standalone sandstone boulders situated on the side of a hill. Some of the boulders tend to be sandy so care is needed on these problems.

The boulders are in a clearing within a wood.

The majority of the landings are on lush green level grass.

Getting There 

From the A1 about 6 miles North of Bedford, take the B6353 west. Shortly before you reach the hamlet of Ford, take a right on a minor road, go straight at the first crossroads, then take the next right. After 1/4 mile park up and walk up the hill to the clearing in the wood, and the boulders.
